There were amazing scenes last night as hundreds of Belvedere College fans marched across the Liffey to celebrate their team's Leinster Schools Senior Cup final win over Roscrea.

As is tradition, the Belvo supporters marched down O'Connell street, bringing traffic to a standstill, on their way to celebrate at the school on Great Denmark Street.

It was Belvedere's 11th senior cup win, which puts them second all-time on the roll of honour, albeit a long way behind Blackrock College's 68 trophies.

The northside Dublin school avenged last year's final defeat to Roscrea in style at the RDS yesterday, running in five tries in a 41-7 win. Wing James McKeown was again the star for Phil Werahiko's men, touching down twice to add to the hat-trick he scored against St Michael's in the semi-final.

Previously, in the quarter-final, Belvedere knocked out pre-tournament favourites Blackrock after a replay.
